The Cin Theatre (Undisclosed Address)

Dramatizing the use of glass and lighting so that the entire building front becomes a distinctive and theatrical sign, this proposed theatre offers unusual possibilities where the weather permits, and many new thoughts which might be considered in even northern climes.

The marquee and sign of illuminated tapestry glass offer a striking and flexible method of adver tising. Illuminated Kodachrome transparencies



provide further means of display. The ticket booth, with its 46turret topii of multi-plane safety glass acts also as an observation control. i

To the left of the entrance is a garden-lounge5 surrounded by a glazed trellis screen and the clear glass walls of the lobby and foyer. This area could he roofed in glass or awninged, in accordance with the season or the desires of the management, and is situated in such a way as to he used as the candy

IN ANY EXTENSIVE USE OF PLAIN GLASS, THE WARM GREENERY AND INFORMAL OUTLINES OF HORTICULTURAL PLANTING AS A CONTRAST TO RECTANGULAR ARCHITECTUREAL SHAPES, SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED. NOTE HOW THE DISPLAY BOARDS IN THE TRELLIS SCREEN ADD A NEW AND NOVEL TOUCH TO AN UNUSUAL DESIGN.
